igus launches new generation cables for industrial robots

igus extends its range of Ethernet cables for motion with new robot cables in accordance with the CAT6A and CAT7 Standards
  Today, there are approximately three million industrial robots which work with increasingly high quantities of data and are an integral part of modern production facilities. Durable cables made of special materials and featuring advanced technical characteristics ensure fail-safe data transfer and are essential in manufacturing if cost-intensive production outages are to be avoided. igus, the motion plastics specialist, has been developing special cables for motion for 25 years and has now expanded its portfolio with the world’s first cables for three-dimensional motion in very complex applications.
The company presented its Ethernet bus robot cables specially made for three-dimensional movement at the recently concluded Elecrama 2016. Complying with the CAT6A or CAT7 standard, the new chainflex CFROBOT8.050 (CAT6A) and chainflex CFROBOT8.052 (CAT7) cables ensure fast data transfer according to the latest industrial standards.
In this way igus guarantees fast and secure data transfer during operation, even under extreme conditions of mechanical stress, for example where industrial robots are supplied with data. The new cables from igus are a further addition to the already extensive range of Ethernet cables for continuous movement in energy chains.
The range of chainflex Ethernet cables that are supplied by igus and which have been specially designed, manufactured and tested for continuous motion, has now increased to 27 different types of different quality categories and price classes.
Special technical designs enable a long service life“All the components of the robot cables such as stranded core structures, shields and sheath materials are subjected to varying levels of stress when torsional movements occur,” says Richard Habering, Global Product Manager – chainflex cables, igus. “In order to make sure that the chainflex cables remain stable and that data security is ensured, igus employs a combination of films that slide very easily yet are extremely stable, together with especially ‘soft’ fillings that systematically absorb the forces that occur.”
The specifications such as dampning, cable capacitance and signal quality must constantly remain the same within narrow tolerances over the entire service life of the cable. Torsionally optimised insulating materials and mechanical damping elements with matching capacitance values guarantee this durability.
Guaranteed performanceThanks to the highest degree of quality tests, igus can make the durability and service life of its cables predictable for every user. The company provides an unique three-year guarantee on every chainflex cable. “We provide predictable reliability for 36 months or up to 10 million double strokes or 5 million double strokes for the very cost-effective chainflex M cables,” Sreejith Menon, Product Manager – Chainflex at igus (India) Pvt Ltd assured.
